When I was setting up the system last night, I found that the left Joycon in particular was much more sensitive to the right side of it being covered and not directly facing the console. I watched a video before the Switch launch that gave a pretty decent explanation for why the Joycons may become less responsive, but Nintendo really should have focused on giving them a much stronger signal than they actually have considering a human hand is enough to basically destroy the signal from controller to console.

Considering the ridiculous effective range in current bluetooth capable devices like the iPhone 7, I find it strange that Nintendo seems to have gone with a vastly inferior method of signal transmission.
